The Lyrics

I'm at as always
You noticed your watch was missing
You're left without a dime
You can't find the glasses that go on your head
and you're sure you've not drunk your wine
and you wonder why you're out this time

Stole all your pearls
Hid them in their world now
Watch for them fishes you think aren't too keen
Check their gills each week

Most think they can't steal a thing
but I know the truth
I've seen them late at night with a light picking fights
Take a bike or two
Swimming out

Watch all the fish
Swimming in that dish
Them fish aren't as stupid as we'd like to think
Throw them down the sink

They aren't scared of the kitties
Act that way 'til dawn
Late at night that flounder steals Quarter-Pounders
From a McDonald's just for fun
and then they held up a bunch of nuns

Damn evil fish
Eat them, that's my wish
Fry all the fishes in the lakes and seas
Catch each one you see

Lost your homework
It was those fish jerks
They took your shirt
Stole from you and me

They're fighting back
Police think I'm whack
Who else would burn that Red Lobster* last week
Evil fish you'll see

Watch out for fish
Birds it's time to eat

Lock all your doors
Bolt up ev'ry store
Fishies are marching taking all they see
Sick of Earthworm feed

Let's end their world
Eat them 'til you hurl
Eat Long John Silvers* and at Captain D's*
Earth-it's time to eat

you've been eating SOMETHING funny but i'm not sure it was fish

There's nothing fishy with this parody you wrote, Dave! Reminds me of this South Park episode where Stan get's haunted by that murderous fish in his bedroom. Well, since I love to eat fish a whole lot, I don't mind eating those fish for you. Heck, I'll even make sushi out of them. Three school of fish each blows you 5 bubbles.

Undoubtedly based on all those (true) walking-catfish stories. Can't stand OS - anything's an improvement, but this was imaginative and funny.

Thank You Matthias, Alvin, Christie Marie M, Ann Hammond, Tommy Turtle, and LCC

Alvin: I swear it was just caffiene, just don't check the aquarium:)

Christie Marie: I had to research a bit, I was able to find it--what a hilarious episode--an Indian Burial ground--thank you

Tommy-Agreed 100% on TOS--it needs any face lift it can get, the song said "Joy to the fishes in the sea", and I thought "well why not cows chewing the grass" or "pigs in the mud"--why are fish so special? and then the inspiration came

LittleCupCakes: Right back at you--enjoy your Christmas and Happy New Years!

BAD: re your comment at "Wouldn't Peace Be Brotherly", if you want to put it on your site or record it or whatever, feel free. I'd appreciate credit (including acknowledgment of copyright) and a link back to the song's page -- and, of course, when the big bucks roll in, we split 50/50. There's an email link at the bottom, after my sig - sorry about the CAPTCHA stuff, but I despise spambots.

(Artistry) The mind of Dave is an amazing place. You have a knack for writing parodies that just scream for videos. "Flounders stealing Quarter-Pounders", heh heh.

(Artistry)Um....yeah. I uh....really don't know what to say about this one. Let's just say I'm totally lost.

The video you provided was off, but I still liked this one! Another one of your crazy evil animal parodies, thankfully we have those penguins to eat the fish so we don't have to worry.

(Artistry) Evil fish, evil penguins - I think the oceans out to get Dave for some reason. Great parody, man! 555 harpoons for you!
